To Cold Cone..or Not to Cold Cone...

HEllo all. Well, went to a new Dr. today. Not many choices seeing as I do not have insurance and on a grant program. Anywho, I have the choice of waiting 4 months and do a repeat colpo/leep (CINIII no clear margins) or to schedule a cold knife deal. Any suggestions? I am up in the air. I think I want to opt for the knife, but at the same time, I do not know how it would affect my ability to have more children.
Any info will, as always be appreciated.

Hi Kemp,

Sorry you are going through this right now-one of my best friends is also going through this; her Pap showed CIN III, she is awaiting a LEEP. She really wants to start a family and is concerned about the effects of these treatments on fertility.

A cone biopsy can have an effect on carrying a child, but my understanding is that the effect is relatively small and can be overcome by putting in a cerclage stitch in to help keep the cervix closed.

Jeanine is someone who had a cone biopsy and then went on to successfully carry children. Even women who have had their entire cervix removed have been able to have children. I hope that is encouraging to you if you decide to go with a cone. You have to choose the path that is right for you, and only you can decide what that will be.

Good luck to you,
